During the first two sessions of the NY2LA Association this spring, one of the most electric playmakers has been Angel Sonnier. During both the Spring Extravaganza in Indianapolis and Grassroots Showcase in Louisville back in April, the 6’0” 2023-point guard continuously played at a high level leading his Houston Superstars team to a 6-2 record between the two tournaments. Prior to the spring, he averaged 18 points and 4.6 assists in his senior season at Mayde Creek High School in Houston, Texas. 

Game after game, Sonnier not only scored the ball very effectively, but also showed his ability on the defensive end locking up some of the better guards on the Association. While he had several impressive performances, it was his 29-point game in a winning effort over Chapman Basketball where all his tools were on display. Sonnier has excels with the ball in his hands with his tight handle but also changes his speeds so effectively to not only get into the paint often but also create his shot. He has been an elite playmaker getting inside to create for himself but also distribute the ball so well all in addition to consistently knocking down several threes each game. 

While Sonnier considered a move to the 2024 class, he ultimately decided to stay in the 2023 class and head to college this year. With his breakout spring, the college interest has started to greatly build for the dynamic playmaker. While he has not received an offer yet, he has started to receive interest from a few division one programs.
